Thanks I’ll have a read into it :) 

Karelia MW DX web receiver

As http://www.sdrspace.com/Version-1 was closed in the beginning of June, my receiver is now connected via http://status.sdrspace.com/onair.xml , most of the time with a 400 m Bev directed to Southeast Asia.

Enjoy!

Karelia MW DX remote receivers

Hello MW DXers,

As SDR-Console v1.5 server was stopped and I can't run newer versions on my old dedicated Vista laptop, I have moved my SDR-IQ to
http://sdranywhere.com/cloud/sdrweb.py
Please try, the software is really simple to use.
Also one Perseus online on that laptop almost 24/7 until May and another a bit less.
Antennas are five about 400 metre Beverages chosen by me acc. to conditions and the time of day. They are fed by 300 m coax to escape noise from the village, so there is some loss on SW and also otherwise work better on MW. The noise is lower now than previous years because power lines were buried underground and open air ADSL lines have been dismantled. The only problem is low MW during daylight hours, about 500-700 kHz, but there is some hope, that even that will be fixed in the coming weeks.
There has been some hickups in the past due to about 0.6 Mbps upload, when 3-4 remotes were in use simultaneously, but now I have got fiber with 100 Mbps upload speed, so there shouldn't be problems at any time. The downside is almost doubled monthly cost. If you consider yourself a heavy user or otherwise appreciate this service, a small donation to my Paypal at Mauno.Ritola@... is welcome, so are comments on reception.

Now MW conditions are bad, but let's hope for better next week. If you log anything via this QTH to http://www.mwlist.org/mw_logmap.php , the site code for is 25.

Enjoy!

Marahau NZ KiwiSDR site

Chris Mackerell
 

Hi All

I've just added a second KiwiSDR to my site here at Marahau, Tasman Bay, New Zealand.

The first Kiwi is now set for 4 channels (was 8), daisy-chained to the second, which
is in 8 channel mode. If the first receiver is full you should get automatically moved to
the second.

The main receiver is at http://kiwisdr.owdjim.gen.nz:8073
The second, if you want to access it directly, is http://kiwisdr2.owdjim.gen.nz:8075

I also have an old Elad S2 set to cover the mediumwave band at http://sdr2.owdjim.gen.nz:8074

All are connected to the same Wellbrook loop at the moment, but next year I hope to install
a EWE antenna for one of the Kiwis.

I also have a couple of receiver on GlobalTuners if you are a member there (my old
AOR AR7030 and an RTL VHF/UHF dongle).

Enjoy!

I am new to this group. I must say CHRIS has assembled one of the best SDR stations I have tried. It appears to be set up for shortwave broadcast listening rather than the amateur bands however what I was amazed to find the FT8 etc. decoder in there.

Best regards - Bry Carling, AF4K

What an unbelievable decision! Hams from certain countries have used my remote receivers for more than a decade in many cases for cheating in QSO's and some hams closed their remote sites for that very reason. And still they are generally better than us?

Sadly, the very useful SDR.HU network of web receivers scattered over the globe is now open only to those in possession of an amateur radio licence. Apart from Global Tuners, is anyone aware of any other website offering access to remote receivers?

I’m sure Mauno makes a good point!

But to the other gentleman you should try this:

http://web sdr.org

You will find many many remote receivers there with open access, and if you are not a licensed radio amateur that is the thing that you need.

This appears to use it's own software though, so is of no use to
people like me who run their own KiwiSDRs.

Cheers, Chris

From some Twitter post i read
http://www.kiwisdr.com/public/
should be a working directory for KiwiSDR.

I also do not like the decision of to make the sdr.hu directory only visible for registered users but we have to accept that this is the decision of HA7ILM and he probably has good reasons to do so. I would not blame him for that. In the end it is his page and he pays for it, so he can decide who is using it.

For other forks of openwebrx there might be other directories in the future.

I don’t disagree with the decision to have registered users, but not everyone who knows how to use a communications receiver has a ham call-sign. I’ve been an SWL for nearly 45 years and always used those radios respectfully

As a Christmas present to myself I added a second KiwiSDR to my Marahau site.

I thought this would allow me to offer more channels to DXers & SWLs while
using more  channels for my own interest, WSPRnet.

I find it interesting that those people who "abuse" my receivers are all amateurs,
at least based on the frequencies they are monitoring. The DXers & SWLs
come and go. The hams squat on a channel all day every day. Why I have no idea.

Chris -
Radio amateurs parking on one frequency; that is how
some radio amateurs often find their friends... or
become a relaiable contact for real conversation.
Think daily chat. Or nets. Formal and informal.
There is still alot of that. Not everyone is a contester (not saying that you think that... it just is!)

I know there is nnot much of that left in the "digital age."

Most hams seem to be using inpersonal forms of communication, and the older ones who are the exception, might be puzzling to didgi ops!
